I’m so grateful for the way God wired me. I literally can receive inspiration for a blog from anything. I was watching Squid Games on Netflix, episode 5. If you are watching the show, don’t read this post yet. 😂
In this episode, they are playing tug-a-war and one team is favored to win because they have 3 women on their team and an elderly man compared to the other team with all men. The elderly man assured them he had never lost a game of tug-a-war despite bigger opponents because it is all in the positioning of each player and team. The older gentleman gave them instructions on how to position themselves and other strategies to lean back for the first 30 seconds to tire out their opponent.
In addition to this, another guy on their team stepped up as a leader and suggested for them to take 3 steps forward which the team was nervous to do; however, those 3 steps helped them become victorious over their opponent.
While I’m not condoning the show, I’ve learned to find random life lessons in daily things in life. This episode showed me the importance of listening to wisdom from others, the power of teamwork, and the power of influence from a leader. If one person would not have listened or been on one accord with the team it could have cost them not only the game but their life.
Sometimes we aren’t the smartest person in the room, it’s okay to heed wisdom from others.
Share some wisdom you learned from someone else.
